Update in Murder from May: Suspect is in Custody

From the City of Everett:

Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit arrested a man for the May 24, 2018 death of an Everett man.

Since the death of 62 year-old Jay Agostinelli in the 1200 block of Broadway Ave on May 24, 2018, Major Crimes detectives have worked to solve the case. Through investigation, an image of a male near the Broadway location was obtained.

As a person of interest, the public was asked to identify the male and provide tips. As detectives followed up on leads, the Marysville Police Department identified the male as 22 year-old Samuel Axlund of Bellingham.

Everett detectives interviewed Axlund at the Whatcom County Jail and developed probable cause to arrest him for murder (RCW 9A.32.050). When he was released from Whatcom [January 30th, 2019], Axlund was arrested and booked into the Snohomish County Jail.

Here is the press release from last June, when the EPD first released the info:

Just after midnight on May 24th, officers responded to the 1200 block of Broadway Ave on the report of two males fighting. Arriving officers found a male lying near a bus stop located on the east side of the street.

The male, who was bleeding severely from his head, was later identified as 62 year-old Jay Agostinelli. He was a local homeless male known to camp in the Everett and Marysville area. During the assault Agostinelli sustained multiple skull fractures; a weapon was believed to have been used. Mr. Agostinelli was taken to a local hospital, but died as a result of the injuries he sustained.

Officers contacted several nearby witnesses who watched the assault and they provided a description of a male seen fleeing northbound after the attack. That same male was seen running eastbound on 12th St. The male below (pictured at top of article) is believed to be the male who ran from the scene and is a person of interest in this case.
